Who is singing the female vocals on "Hoochie Coochie Man"?

Gregg Allman says: "lets bring our sex symbol on stage... you know who you are" at the end of Trouble No More. I didn't hear a name and its sounds like it was just for that song because they roll into Mountain Jam next (tape is cut too)...

Any thoughts?

I believe Greg is facetiously referring to Berry Oakley who handled the vocals on Hoochie Coochie Man...

Actually it was Duane who did all the talking on stage.

I could be wrong, I haven't listened to this show for a while, but it seems like any ABB show from that era Duane usually does most of the song intros and stage banter.

Berry Oakley is the person Gregg alludes to.......

For all ABB fans: check out the Atlanta Pop Festival which is avaliable at stores and amazon.

The two shows the ABB played in 7/70 are unleashed FIRE!
Yes, Hendrix was there). The Brothers playing and recording sound is worth listening to; in many ways the playing is more powerful and spontaneous than the Fillmore East

Haven't heard it, but perhaps Bonnie Bramlett of Delaney & Bonnie?

I could be wrong, but I dont think Bonnie started joining the Allman Brothers Band on stage untill 1979. She did sing backup on at least one Gregg Allman solo album prior to that and I believe Duanne may have sat in on a couple Delaney & Bonnie performances. Both Gregg and Duanne backed her for at least one live performance in 1971. Perhaps someone more knowlegable about the Allmans can confirm/clarify this?

Interestingly, Delaney & Bonnie were part of the July 1970 Festival Express.

That ain't no female, that's Berry Oakley, the Allman Brothers Band bass player. It was the only song he sang.

I was there for all six shows. There was no female singer--though there sure were some purty longhaired fellers. Oakley did sing in a higher range.
